last week Anton and i got sucked in, deep, to the classic 1989 western mini-series . it got to the point where i was texting him during the day saying “don’t watch LD without me!” even though my husband is partial to the occasional cowboy film, we were both oblivious to its existence.
which is why it was such a nice surprise, i actually fell onto the couch the day Anton had started watching it, distracted by my phone and not expecting to get caught up in it at all. next thing i know i was all, “is that… Robert Duvall? and Danny Glover? …wait, is that Tommy Lee Jones with a peroxided beard? ooh a young Diane Lane… hold on, Glenne Headly?! Chris Cooper! ANJELICA HUSTON!! STEVE motherflipping BUSCEMI…?!” (Anton hates when i do this – i’m like a walking IMDb)
needless to say it has a stellar cast – that’s how the good ones getcha, darlin’. and Lonesome Dove doesn’t pussy foot around, i haven’t seen so many characters die since Game of Thrones. so if you’re looking for something new (old) to watch, give it a whirl!
PS it’s based on a . also here’s some vintage cowboys & girls for ya.
